Pope John Paul’s visit to Saint Louis – 1/26/99
Pope John Paul II visited Saint Louis in January, 1999.
His motorcade traveled Lindell Blvd on its way downtown.
I visualized this cannon pointing at the Popemobile as it passed.
The logistics of the cannon’s position in relation to the street made the idea unworkable.
Fortunately, this boy stuck his head in the barrel, which created an interesting composition.
